Please join us at MAGMA for an informal performance of this work-in-progress on Friday June 17, 7:30pm. This event is free, but donations are appreciated to help support the work.
Concourse, created by choreographers Barbie Diewald and Shakia Barron, is a dance project that extends the duet form. Barron and Diewald facilitate a live dialogue in performance, joined by their mentors and emerging artists who are former students. Bringing vision and legacy into conversation at the level of the body, this confluence creates an intergenerational community of inquiry, and affirms that mentorship is multidirectional: we glean as much from our mentees as from our mentors. Concourse celebrates the feedback loops that occur when we collapse the distinctions between self, student, teacher, and material.
The work will premiere at Mount Holyoke College in September 2022.
